I have always loved the outdoors and nature. For years, I often brought a camera with me whenever I spent time outdoors—usually a point-and-shoot or a cell phone camera. But it wasn’t until 2018 while on an amazing trip to Antarctica that I really started to understand the artistic power of a camera. On that trip, two National Geographic photographers not only offered a class on photography and gave us a few tips, but also critiqued some of the photos we took on the trip and gave us feedback on how to improve our shots. Needless to say, as soon as I returned home, I bought my first DLSR camera.
My passion for the outdoors is as strong as ever. I live in the foothills outside of Boulder Colorado, where I’m out on the trails hiking or cross country skiing almost every weekend. I also visit and enjoy the great sights and vistas of as many national and state parks as often as I can. My goal is to reclaim nature’s beauty through the camera lens in hopes of helping you experience nature the way I encountered it.
Because I cannot improve on what Mother Nature has created, I have decided to do no post-processing work, except for a little cropping. I hope you enjoy the photos and join me in appreciating the beauty that surrounds us. Thanks for visiting.
